I hear the whistle of the train

Reverberating in my brain

Its lonesome wail echoes so clear

And sends a song into my ear

There is a mystery you bring

With every plaintive note you sing.

Oh how I wish to ride with you

Until my sojourn here is through

But that can never be, my friend

Our journey lasts until its end !

I look outside, what do I see

A field of violets smiles at me

While over in the corner there

Two lilacs do their blooms compare.

Hydrangeas all like spreading out

They love the space and so they shout

“Hey, look at me, I’m gussied up

My blossoms fill your largest cup !”

Consider all the dandelions

They are the brighest of all kinds

And when they grow close to the ground

They’re the best cover to be found.

I’d like to think that flowers know

How much we love them as they grow

And keep themselves sweet as they can

In tribute to God’s love of man !

 

 

SUN AND SHADOWS ( 2019 ) 2019/04/17


The morning sun peeks through the blind

In hopes it will an outlet find

It zigzags swiftly cross the floor

To bounce off mirrors by the score

The shadows puddle and disperse

Erratic movements seem rehearsed.

How fast the sunlight streams clear through

In such great haste, so much to do

You must not wince in sunshine’s glare

Just shade your eyes and do take care !

The Ides of March have come and gone

And gave us nought to wish upon

We are defeated and undone

With no place left for us to run.

How shall we make our way today

When there’s no place to hide away

Surrender is the one true path

To offer God all that we hath !

 

 

BE ALWAYS THERE ( 2019 ) 2019/04/15

The night is cool, the air is sweet

God’s vernal world lies at our feet

Each dried up twig now sports new leaf

The winter’s gone to our relief

Our barren coast revives once more

With summer dreams in full encore.

How glad am I to feel awake

And comprehend just what’s at stake

This life we have is all we need

Let’s thank the Lord and pay Him heed

As He’s the answer to all prayer

Oh blessed Lord, be always there !

 

FOREVER FRIEND ( 2019 ) 2019/04/14

There was a dream that I once had

Which made my memories so glad

Long time ago when I was young

And all my hopes were yet unsung

The energy still kept its  charm

And laughter held no great alarm.

Tis time for freedom and for joy

When all life’s pleasures are employed

Oh, would that God was always there

To hear our ever grateful prayer

And see us through until the end

He is our true and constant friend !

 

GIANT HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/04/13

Sometimes the world seems upside down

Sure makes it hard to get around

Sometimes we notice small mistakes

Let’s fix it fast before it breaks

Sometimes we find we’re not that smart

But we possess a giant heart !
